College Preparatory, On His Level
In keeping with St. John Baptist de La Salle’s mission, Christian Brothers High School offers a comprehensive academic program to a widely diverse group of learners. Our socioeconomic and intellectual diversity are a real asset for our boys as they prepare for adult life - the world does not reside in the 90th percentile. With the understanding that our students have enrolled from105 different schools, thus begin from widely diverse bases of knowledge, our focus is to afford each student the opportunity to reach his fullest potential by ensuring that he is intellectually challenged, yet not overwhelmed or under-challenged.
We utilize Aleks® and Achieve 3000® software in order to individualize the reinforcement of math skills and reading comprehension. Struggling students attend three extra-help sessions per week with tutoring from seniors in the National Honor Society, students in the Peer Tutoring Program, and faculty members.
The comprehensive, college-preparatory CBHS curriculum provides flexibility for individuals' abilities by offering courses on multiple levels.
De La Salle Scholars
The De La Salle Scholars are a group of boys who have earned scholarships based on their entrance exam scores. From the very beginning, this group is placed on our most advanced honors track and will have the opportunity to take a wide range of AP and collegiate dual-enrollment classes as upperclassmen.
The top 10% of the Class of 2018 attained an average ACT score of 32.4. The Class of 2018 also included four National Merit Finalists and six Commended Students. During the 2017-2018 school year, 31 students reached "AP scholar" status by scoring a 3 or higher in 3 or more AP exams, thereby earning college credit.
In the last three years, Brothers’ Boys have enrolled into institutions such as the United States Naval Academy, the United States Air Force Academy, the University of Notre Dame, Harvard University, the University of Pennsylvania, Princeton University, Vanderbilt University, the University of Virginia, the University of Southern California, Southern Methodist University, Stanford University, Texas Christian University, Tulane University, Washington and Lee University, and Rhodes College.
